This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The daughter of photographer Chansonnetta Emmons, Dorothy Emmons was a painter, etcher, illustrator and writer. She was a member of the Stanley Steamer family and was married to a Rev. Whitchurch at the time of her death in Kingfield, Maine.

She studied at Wellesley College and in Ogunquit with Charles Woodbury. Other teachers were Aldro Hibbard, George Noyes, and George E Browne. She lived in Newton, Massachusetts but also painted in Charleston, North Carolina; Savannah, Georgia; Florida, and Bermuda. She was a member of the Copley Society and of the Massachusetts Federated Women's Club from whom she won exhibition prizes in 1933 and 1934. Her work is in their collection.

Emmons was also an author and illustrator for magazines.

Peter Falk, "Who Was Who in American Art"
Excerpts from a note, March 2004, from Bruce Barham:

My great uncle, Charles Wilson, was a poet/photographer/painter who settled in Kingfield, Maine in the late twenties and was a friend of Dorothy Emmons. He also saved from the dump, as was related to me before his death, many original camera negatives taken by Dorothy over the years of her travels with her mother, Chansonetta Stanley Emmons.

Some of these materials my family donated to the Stanley Museum in Kingfield. The museum has some fine examples from her body of work. There are other private owners of her paintings in Kingfield as well.

Marius Peladeau wrote a fine book on Chansonetta which includes multiple mentions of her constant and life-long companion, Dorothy. It explains Chansonetta's relationship with the Stanley twins, F. E. and F. O. who invented many things, including the dry plate photographic process which they sold to George Eastman. It was this sale which allowed them to finance the development of the Stanley Steamer Automobile Company.

After the very early death of Chansonetta's husband (Dorothy's father) the Stanley twins financed (in a frugal Yankee sort of way) 'Netta, as they called her, on her photographic jaunts to the Stanley Hotel in Colorado as well as to the South by motor car in the early part of the 20th century. There were many other trips documented by photographs, including trips to the New England coast and to Europe.

Chansonetta was always accompanied by Dorothy. In fact, I've been told that Chansonetta would give public lantern shows of her photographs to make a little money and Dorothy would be the narrator while her mother would run the equipment.

Dorothy was dedicated to her mother and it wasn't until after her mother's death that she married very late in her life.

Biography from Charleston Renaissance Gallery:
One of the many nationally accomplished artists who traveled and worked in the city during the era of the Charleston Renaissance, Dorothy Emmons was born in Roxbury, Massachusetts. She studied at Wellesley College and in Ogunquit, Maine with Charles Woodbury, one of the leading American Impressionists, to whom she owes her fresh and evocative plein air style.

A painter, etcher, illustrator and author, Dorothy was the daughter and lifelong companion of the miniature painter and photographer, Chansonnetta Stanley Emmons, and accompanied her mother on her travels in the American south and west, and abroad to Europe
